About the Bartlett House

This Queen Anne-style house was originally built in 1881 by Mr. George Foreman and purchased in 1891 by Frank and Fannie Bartlett for $15,000, a hefty sum for that time. The house features nine rooms decorated in turn-of-the-century Victoriana and seven fireplaces, each different in design and composition. You will notice the intricate detail work in every room and that each room has a different floor design, some with as many as seven different woods imported from around the world. The Tiffany-style staircase window, the woodwork thoughout, and very interesting period furnishings, all present a wonderful tour back in time.

Meaning of the word Cattaraugus

CATTARAUGUS, from a Seneca Indian word meaning “bad smelling banks,” referring to the odor of natural gas leaking from rock seams. http://www.dos.ny.gov/info/pdfs/countynames.pdf

The word "Cattaraugus" means "foul-smelling river bank." This name is a result of the natural gas that oozes from the river mud. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cattaraugus_Creek.

In our opinion, only some of the river banks are bad smelling. Come on over and visit a creek in Cattaraugus County and tell us what you think.
